Gone a bit off the wall on this one. I haven't actually used metal on this card, I wanted to experiment with achieving a metal effect. Here's the result
For the background, I had fun with microbeads. I laid strips of double sided tape on black card carefully, making sure no gaps were left between each strip. I then took of the protective layer on alternate strips and covered in gold micro beads, ensuring complete coverage on the tape. I then did the rest of the strips in black microbeads. The finish looks fab and gives a really tactile finish. Just to give a little extra va va voom, I've placed some pretty little paper flowers on a branch in the corner, just a little feature.
Why not have a look over at Drunken Stampers to see what the rest of the team have created.
